 So how big of a nozzle did you use? like a 1mm or .8mm?
It was really .5 with default feedrate (which is pretty slow). The size is 12cm and weight is about 150g. A hollow sphere of this size would print much faster.

Instructions

Test print was done with 0.5mm layer thickness and took 13 hours on BFB 3D Touch with 10% infill. I had to add vertical supporting walls in the lower part of the sphere, but did not put them close enough so there was some printing in the air.

.5mm or .05mm? .5mm is pretty coarse and for 13 hours I think you'd be printing something the size of a basketball. :-)
